POLICE have named Khalid Masood as the man behind Wednesday’s terror attacks in Westminster.

He was not the subject of any current police investigations, but had a range of previous convictions.

He hired the car, which he used to carry out his atrocities, from a hire firm in Shirley.




Police made a number of arrests in Birmingham in the wake of the tragedy.

Masood was shot dead by armed police.
